NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said he is "confident" headline inflation would remain between 6.5-7.5 percent throughout the fiscal year 2012/13.

Headline inflation accelerated to 7.55 percent in May, driven by double-digit rises in food and fuel prices, government data showed on Thursday.
